WINDSHIELD WIPER BLADES

Windshield Wiper Replacement: Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac

Windshield wipers and rear wiper blades have come a long way since wipers were first patented in 1903. Today a variety of materials and styles create a wide array of wipers to whisk away rain, dirt, and snow. During a regular visit for an oil change, or any other service, your dealer should check your windshield wipers and rear wiper blades on your Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, or Cadillac vehicle as part of the Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection.

Should you need new wipers, your Certified Service experts are proud to offer GM Original Equipment, ACDelco Advantage, and ACDelco Performance blades.


TYPES OF WINDSHIELD WIPER BLADES

From the first hand-operated rubber windshield wiper to today’s automatic polymer blades, the wiper blade has evolved significantly in its 100-year-plus history. Today, most vehicles use a beam-style wiper blade, while vehicles manufactured prior to 2000 used a conventional-style wiper blade.

Conventional Windshield Wipers and Wiper Blades

Conventional Windshield Wipers

Often standard on model-year 2000 or older models, conventional blades have a limited number of pressure points against the length of the blade.

Beam Windshield Wipers and Wiper Blades

Beam Windshield Wipers

Beam blades have become more widely used in new-vehicle manufacturing. Lighter weight, fewer moving parts, and better aerodynamics make a beam blade the preferred wiper blade for more modern vehicles. The beam blade contours to the shape of the windshield and exerts pressure points across the length of the blade.
